Just in time too. God has sent them to stop Brexit, obviously, and fix my bike.

You'll've read Rendezvous with Rama, Snotty?

Wunderbar!

Why will my Shimano kit not select the biggest front derailleur (of 3)? I've read all the web tips, and tried my level best, but it just will not do it. Is it time to cough money to get it fixed? I'm relying on you and your lass, RedA.

It's just a simple Batavus hybrid . . .

I doubt it, but I hadn't thought of that. I'll have another look. Danke schön.

I'm very disappointed it's not aliens. Or perhaps that's what They want us to believe. Who could blame them?

In other news, Sid is back. Rejoice!

In other good news, £25 for a bike service in Welshpool, including fixing the derailleur (common Shimano problem, they said). I'll take it in next week.

Trouble is I have 12 bikes  Grin

I remember your Rule:

Q: "How many bikes do you need?"

A: "One more than you have."

I currently have two, one of which is a motorbike. I definitely need one more, but the bank account doesn't agree . . .


                                     Moto-Guzzi (ideally)


                                     BMW (this would do)

A wise man said, "You can't step in the same stream twice," but I find wet feet soon get caked with sand and grit.  That's very unpleasant, especially between the toes.  So when I go for a stroll I stay on the sidewalk.

Not sure if this'll work for you, outside the UK, but it's got to be worth giving it a try. Rama.

Just click on the picture, and then play it.

Let me know whether it works for you.
